    Curs originated in the Southeastern U.S., but you can find different “Cur” types throughout the country. Dependable and hardy, Curs were used by pioneers to herd cattle, hunt wild boar and guard property.

    Though no one knows their exact lineage, Black Mouth Curs are believed to descend from ancient European and Asian Cur-type herding and hunting dogs.

    The BMC is a short-coated dog and so the shedding isn’t as noticeable as a long coated dog. Most BMCs blow out their coats twice a year, in the late fall and in spring and are not a constant shedder.
